We are interested in creating a development system that holistically targets those working with youth، by providing them with specialized content, professional training, and an interactive community for practitioners. It is the field of work that complements formal education, which belongs to learning outside the framework of school and formal education frameworks, and aims to enhance young people's knowledge of themselves, others, and society, support their growth, independence, and self-reliance, achieve active citizenship, and contribute to social, economic, cultural, artistic and media participation.
Youth-In was launched in March 2017 as one of the community initiatives of Khaled Ali Al-Turki & Sons Alturki Company, with the aim of contributing to raising the productivity of our youth and enhancing their social and economic role.
The initiative seeks to establish a legacy model and a house of expertise that connects qualified workers with young people, addressing them in a holistic manner.
Youth In has three strategic objectives in its work programs:
Our experts are individuals who work in the government sector, the private sector, or the non-profit sector and are trained, academically and practically to directly support the youth by providing extracurricular programs and activities which seek to develop the new generations at the individual and collective level.
Alturki supports Education for Employment (EFE), a network of locally-run, not-for-profit organizations that provide young people in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) with the instruments to start a job, become entrepreneurs, build their future, and give back to their communities.
EFE creates public-private partnerships to build intensive, interactive, tailored training programs for jobs that are pre-committed by its business partners and provide companies with suitable talent. As a complementary pathway to economic opportunity, EFE’s entrepreneurship program prepares young people to become entrepreneurs and provides access to tangible follow-up support.
EFE-Saudi Arabia publicly launched in 2017 to provide underprivileged and unemployed young Saudi women and men with demand-driven training directly linked to economic opportunities. Its establishment was guided by a private-sector advisory committee, along with seed funding and incubation from leading Saudi Arabian companies and foundations

MISSION: Contribute to the development of girls in the Eastern Province by developing their capabilities and enhancing their values.
In 2019, Alturki Company partner up with the Girls' Development and Rehabilitation Association (Afoq) to implement the Teacher Qualification Program (Khatta). The training program contributes to increasing job opportunities by qualifying freshly female graduates to comprehensively lead the educational process in private sector schools through a series of training courses and workshops.
In line with the Saudi Vision 2030, Afoq aims to providing sustainable programs for girls between 15 and 30 years old according to the scientific principles of sound counseling and advising them on social and professional fields. The association relies on planning its programs according to the girls’ needs, as well as the directives of experts in the field. The association works to measure the impact of its programs on its beneficiaries through periodic questionnaires to measure the impact of the initiatives on the young ladies.
